Carnival Chaos: GH

Chaos ensued in the aftermath of Edward's heart attack and Anthony's failed takeover attempt, leaving a trail of destruction behind. On Tuesday's General Hospital, Edward suffered from what appeared to be a heart attack after consuming a martini laced with poison, sending his car careening down the carnival midway. And on Wednesday's episode viewers watched as Edward's car continued to plow through the attractions, causing countless deaths and injuries along the way. One of these deaths was Andrea Floyd, who was killed in a moment that can only be described as poetic justice, as Edward's car pinned her against the Ferris wheel, bringing it to a complete stop.

Unfortunately Edward's car had plenty of time to do damage elsewhere before coming to this stop. Max was one of the first people hit while trying to save the ADA, undoubtedly being exposed to the impact of the car at full speed. Meanwhile Jake had wandered off to look at a booth of stuffed animals, the same booth that Edward hit moments later, causing the entire thing to come crashing down on top of Jake. Shortly thereafter, Morgan narrowly escaped getting hit when Dante pushed him out of the way, placing himself directly in the path of Edward's car. Elsewhere Kristina, Molly, and Claudia were on the kite flier ride, which failed to avoid the impact of Edward's car, causing several people to become trapped, including Kristina.

Back at the warehouse, Johnny had, as I previously predicted, managed to pull Spinelli out of the line of fire. And eventually the sounds of sirens from emergency vehicles, presumably headed to the carnival, scared off Anthony's gunmen. This should have provided Spinelli and Johnny with the perfect opportunity to escape, however it quickly became apparent that Johnny had been shot, causing Spinelli to have to help him to safety. Unfortunately Johnny's wound seemed to be much more serious than they had originally suspected, prompting Spinelli to call for help, but because of what happened at the carnival getting through to 911 proved to be an impossibility. And by the end of the episode Johnny had passed out from an apparent loss of blood, leaving doubts as to whether or not he would survive his injuries.

Meanwhile at the carnival, people were trying to make sense of what had just happened. Jason, Sam, Elizabeth, and Lucky searched frantically for Jake before finally discovering him underneath a pile of stuffed animals. It would later be discovered that Jake was suffering from a skull fracture with unknown severity. Elsewhere Ethan, Nikolas, Rebecca, Robin, and Patrick rushed to pull Edward from his car, noting that he had suffered from a heart attack. Later on at the hospital Robin would question these findings, citing his recent test results that showed he was in good health.

Perhaps some of the most harrowing moments of Wednesday's episode came when it was discovered that Dante had been hit and Kristina was missing, likely pinned under the wreckage of the carnival ride. Moments before Edward's car reached Morgan everyone rushed over to try to warn him to get out of the way, but no one reached him faster than Dante, who was hit while trying to save him. When Morgan told everyone what happened, Olivia went pale with fear as she rushed to Dante's side to check on him, momentarily forgetting her need for discretion. This brief flash of honesty on Olivia's part was over in seconds as she attempted to compose herself, so as not to alert Sonny to the truth. And if for some reason she happened to show too much emotion Jax was there to help her protect all of their secrets. I have to say that I was completely infuriated by this portion of the episode. Olivia is a mother, so protecting the secret that he is Sonny's son should not have kept her from staying by his side as he lay on the ground suffering. Surely it was as obvious to her as it was to everyone else that his injuries were life threatening. Then there was Jax, who was so concerned about making sure that Carly did not find out about everything he had been keeping from her that he pulled Olivia aside before she could say anything incriminating. In my opinion these two deserve each other because they seem to have self-preservation down to a science.

Meanwhile over at the kite flier, Molly and Claudia had somehow made their way off of the ride, while Kristina remained unaccounted for. This had Molly so visibly upset that Claudia insisted that Lulu take her to the hospital waiting room while rescue workers continued to search for Kristina. This, of course, makes Claudia responsible for Kristina, a thought that quite honestly sends chills up my spine.

At the end of this episode there were still few certainties and many doubts as to what would happen to the citizens of Port Charles in the wake of these two tragedies. Ultimately, Jake's head injury may prove to be more serious than it first appeared. Max remained unconscious at the hospital with possible spinal injuries, Edward was headed into surgery, and Dante will undoubtedly need a transplant. The rescue workers remained unsuccessful in their search for Kristina, but viewers caught a glimpse of her shoe as she struggled to call for help through constricted breathing. Coming into this week, viewers knew that someone would not survive. And even though Andrea Floyd has already been killed, it is unlikely she will be the only casualty as this storyline continues to unfold.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
